Hi everyone,
I thought it was about time I added something new to my blog as I am so not good at keeping it updated !!
Today I finished a jumbo Jigsaw piece that I altered especially for my wonderful Daughter.
I got the inspiration for this from Rebecca Swanson who is one of the amazing DT members @ That Craft Place.
First I covered the piece with texture paste, and while it was wet I used a mix of red and white dylusions sprays to colour it.
I then added some white metal corners and other pieces and left to dry overnight.
I added the gorgeous flowers, angel, buttons, bird and cameos all from That Craft place and let these dry.


I made some hat pins and then added a bouquet of flowers into a little silver "thingy" which was an idea I took from Rebecca.
The small cameo setting at the bottom I filled with the fab pebeo prisme fantasy paints also from the shop, I love these as they give a marbled look once they dry.

 I typed out a quote onto white card and distressed the edges and used some Distress ink to age it. I then curled it slightly and stuck it down, once dried I added some glossy accents to give it a lovely shine.
I decided it still needed something so I added a coupe of tassles to the bottom and then added some ribbon to hang it.

I really enjoyed making this and I hope my Daughter will like it as much as I do.
Once again I want to thank Rebecca for giving me the inspiration to make this project. Check out her blog to see hers and other amazing inspiration here Rebbecca swanson.

Finally all the embelishments, pastes and paints I used can be purchased from my favourite craft shop ever  That Craft place.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you like it xxx
